    Epilogue to an Epilogue: Historicizing the re- in Re-enactment

    The Inaugural Professorial Lecture of Prof Mark Franko provides a historical context for re-enactment in contemporary dance in experiments of the 1980s with the reconstruction and reinvention of dance modernism, baroque dance, and offshoots of the baroque.

    It posits the importance of the artist's dual emplacement in multiple senses: between past and present, between intellectual and artistic production, between memory and forgetting. 

    Through an analysis of Martin Nachbar's reenactment of the solo cycle Affektos Humanos by Dore Hoyer, it then proceeds to elaborate a poetics of the archive and the notion of choreography itself as an "order of places" necessary to memory itself.
